12-09-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

December 9, 2018
(2nd Sunday Advent, Yr. C)
“I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete it until the day of Christ Jesus.”  Phil_1:4-6,8-11

John went throughout the whole region of the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah: A voice of one crying out in the desert: “Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths. Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low.  The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”  Lk_3:1-6

The road to salvation is not always an easy one, beloved, as we well know.  That “flesh” of ours is constantly trying to drag us back to the wide path, the easy path.  Jesus tells us that it is the narrow path that leads to His Kingdom.  And John shows us how to straighten out that path:  repentance, reconciliation, cleansing ourselves of sin, and walking in the light of holiness.  Jesus is our “WAY.”  All we need do is follow, just like those Philippians!
